We have released MonoDevelop 2.4

by Miguel de Icaza

We have finally released MonoDevelop 2.4. You can read a high-level description of the changes or see screenshots with the details. I would go for the screenshots myself.

We made packages for OpenSUSE, SLES, Windows and MacOS X. For other Linux distributions, you should consult with your favorite package provider or you can build it yourself from sources.

Congratulations to the team. They not only improved the UI and the editing experience, but they support Gtk#, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, MonoMac and MonoTouch deployments from the same IDE. We have also added support for WCF references and T4 macro processing.

Next Steps for MonoDevelop

For the next release we have a couple of big goals in mind for MonoDevelop:

  • Git support, using GitSharp.
  • Mono on Android support (debugging, templates, deployment).
  • Templates and support for MVC2.

Support for Foo is missing

As you can see from our list of MonoDevelop Tasks there are plenty of tasks that currently have nobody assigned to. This includes even popular features like F#, IronPython, IronRuby or PHP support.

We have limited resources and a huge wish-list. If you want to help us take on any of those tasks, please join us on IRC at irc.gnome.org on channel #monodevelop, or join our mailing lists.
